Architect Sheppard Robson has been named Architects' Journal Top 100 Most Sustainable Practice for 2009.
The company has a studio in City Tower, central Manchester, from where several sustainable developments including the Alan Turing Building, pictured, for Manchester University have been designed. Design features at the Alan Turing Building, named after the father of modern computer science who was based for many years at the university, have saved around 17,000kg of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere.
Ian Butler, head of the North West Sheppard Robson team, commented: "Sheppard Robson is recognised as the leading sustainable practice on a nationwide level and our team has contributed to this reputation by showcasing the most cutting edge sustainable technology throughout the North West.
The award was presented at the annual AJ Gala Dinner in London last night.
